Letter From The Editor

Dear reader, 

‘It has been amazing to be a part of something that is blossoming into such a big part of the school community. Write Away has given me an opportunity to explore my passion for writing and channel my inner creativity. It has been a pleasure to be an editor and read everyone’s amazing submissions, whether it be a piece of creative writing, review or a feature piece, everything submitted has added individuality to the magazine and transformed it into something wonderful. It is bittersweet to be leaving, whilst I will miss the school community immensely, I feel excited and ready for this new chapter and can’t wait to see what the future holds. I hope write away continues to be a creative outlet for the students at Girls’ High and despite it being daunting, people continue to challenge themselves to unleash their creativity and begin essential discussions through writing.’

‘I have just finished watching all of Gilmore Girls as a way of procrastinating from doing A-level revision. If you’ve watched the show, you’ll know it takes you on a journey through the life of Rory Gilmore, through the turmoil of a posh secondary school, through to her university graduation. As my time at Wolverhampton Girl’s high draws to a close, I’m having to make big decisions that will shape the rest of my life. I hope to be a botanist one day: I hope to be able to write about my discoveries in a format that means that people will listen. I can’t predict what my next few seasons of my life will look like, but up till now it’s been a series of typical-American-teen show ups and downs. As I’m writing this, year 13 will have 11 days left at WGHS, and the legacy of this wonderful platform will be handed over. I’d just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has contributed to the magazine this year and its being a pleasure managing the website and reading all of your writings. Consider this a TV show recommendation as well as a plea to continue to Write Away.’

“From a young girl I have always been a lover of reading and writing. I would allow myself to be engrossed into fantasy worlds where all of my problems seemed to fade away and were replaced by the challenges and thoughts of fictional characters. Writing articles for Write Away allowed me this escapism during the stressful times whilst studying for my A-levels. I’m so proud of all of the articles that have been produced in the last couple of years, and I am so excited to see what Write Away has in store for the future. Being a part of Write Away is genuinely an incredible opportunity, if you’re not already, I encourage you all to get involved. Whether you write a book or TV review, a creative writing piece or a features piece on a part of the news that fascinates you, write down your thoughts you won’t regret it! “

-Enya McIntosh Year 13

To the other year 13’s leaving this year, thank you on behalf of Write Away for everything you have done – Enya Mcintosh, Gouri Prasad, Beth Cartwright, George Bucknall, Grace Rosewarne, Grace Bennett, Ruby McKee
